About the Author

CORNELIA ELBRECHT is founder and director of the Institute for Sensorimotor Art Therapy based in Australia. She holds degrees in fine arts and art education in addition to her extensive postgraduate training in various art therapies, Jungian analytical psychology, bioenergetics, Gestalt therapy, bodywork, martial arts, and somatic experiencing. She teaches sensorimotor art therapy throughout Australia and around the world.


"Cornelia Elbrecht's newest book offers an indispensable guide to help our clients overcome challenges, particularly our younger clients or community members who are hesitant to engage in more traditional 'talk' therapy modalities. This integrative, sensorimotor-based art therapy modality offers collaborative tools to awaken insight and intuition; foster focus, calm, resilience, and connection; and facilitate healing and integrate mind, brain, and body."
-Bonnie Goldstein, PhD, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, Boulder, Colorado, and Lifespan Psychological Center, Los Angeles

"Cornelia's book is a much welcome and significant contribution to this field.... She generously shares her wealth of experience: theory and descriptions of practical exercises are well integrated and together with case examples make the book lively and engaging."
-Val Huet, PhD, chief executive officer of the British Association of Art Therapists

"To read this book is to watch a master at work.... Cornelia Elbrecht charts new territory in neurobiologically-informed trauma treatment. Her decades of experience as a sensorimotor art therapist are rooted in the understanding that no psychological process can be experienced separately from the body. Illumined by deeply moving case studies, this handbook is a must-read for expressive therapists, trauma treatment specialists, and holistic practitioners. The author's wisdom, experience and inspiration shine through on every page."
-Lucia Capacchione, PhD, ATR, REAT, director of Creative Journal Expressive Arts Certification Training and author of The Power of Your Other Hand and Recovery of Your Inner Child

"It is revitalizing to read this contemporary and provocative text that sensitively addresses the complexity of trauma and trauma healing. This pivotal text is an essential must-have as it will most certainly progress the discipline and discourse on trauma healing in profound ways."
-Ronald P.M.H. Lay, MA, AThR, ATR-BC, art therapist, supervisor, and MA art therapy program leader, LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore

"Follow the footprints of a master into the realm of psychological healing. A must-read for anyone interested in practicing art therapy."
-Monica Wong, PsyD, faculty, Hong Kong Institute for Counseling Professionals

"This wonderfully useful and inspiring book takes as its foundation the idea that guided drawing can be curative.... It is the Somatic Experiencing of the art therapy world...."
-Jean Bennett. Deputy Programme Leader of the BA (Hons) Creative Expressive Therapies program and Senior Lecturer in MA Art Therapy at the University of Derby, UK

"Cornelia Elbrecht's book draws the reader's attention to an understanding of how line, shape, form, colour and movement in art making can have dynamic impacts on the client who has experienced trauma. This text contributes a unique perspective to the literature on art, healing, and trauma."
-Patricia Fenner, PhD, senior lecturer in art therapy masters program, La Trobe University School of Psychology and Public Health, Australia

"This accessible and practical book weaves together a wealth of information about ways of working with creative processes and bodily awareness to provide new possibilities of recovery for those affected by trauma and emotional issues. It provides a valuable resource of ideas and theoretical rationale suitable for all levels of experience, from those just embarking on their therapeutic journey, to highly experienced practitioners."
-Amanda Levey, BA, MAAT, ATHR, registered psychologist, program leader of arts therapy at
the Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design, New Zealand

"This book is a wonderful merging of depth psychology and contemporary neuroscience theory. The author illustrates the often-neglected truth that the brain is a part of the body. Overall, a significant step forward toward conceptualizing art therapy as work of the body as well as the mind."
-Christopher M. Belkofer, PhD, ATR, LPC, director of the graduate art therapy program at
Mount Mary University
